The Rambam write in his Igeres Teiman writing (based on a prophecy of
Bilam) that prophecy will return to Israel in the year 4976 (=1216).
And also that nevuah will return, and he said that without a doubt
this will be the preface to coming of Mashiach, I don't think he
conditioned it on who will be in Israel at the time
He also describes 11 degrees of prophecy, so it's not so simple -
Nevuah is different than Ruach HaKodes, for instance.
But the Rambam was not a navi, this was only his opinion, not a prophecy.
Also if things are going to be the way they were, we can't have
nevuah without a Sanhedrin, which was the body which certified
someone claiming to be a navi, after testing him.
Probably Rambam (Maimonides), although I'd have to look it up. If anyone has
any references, go ahead and answer, but please let's NOT let this turn into
a theological debate.
